I love a well-made product, be it camera, grip stand, dolly, or what have you. Working with a product where form, function, and finish come together as a cohesive whole is such a joy. I also must admit that I love poring over a piece of gear, looking for ways to improve it, and I’m willing to bet that more than a few of you are the same. I recently had the opportunity to discuss the evolution of...

Without a doubt, one of the requirements of a cine/video zoom lens is that it holds focus throughout the zoom range. What this means is that with a cine zoom, when you zoom in and focus, as you zoom out, the focus holds and doesn’t drift or require adjustment. In the cine world, this has led to strong spring-less lens mounts and collimation to tolerances of hundredths of an inch. Even in the ENG...

Casting is one of the most crucial elements of your film—casting the right actor to play the role can make your film, and casting the wrong actor can break it. It is easy enough to get actors interested in your film, and you don’t have to be limited to friends and family unless that is the aesthetic you are pursuing. There are lots of actors, and lots of people who want to be actors, and want to...

Working with a fluid head can be a joy. When set up with your camera properly balanced, it is a boon to your production. However, when set up incorrectly, operating your tripod can be a nightmare. I remember when I just started out shooting, I acquired an Akely Gyro head. It was built for 35mm cameras way back in the early 1900s and used gyros to smooth out operation. And there I was, trying to...

Cinematography, videography, photography: ultimately, it is about showing something in a way that hasn’t been seen before. How you achieve this is a combination of framing, exposure, and post effects. It is the Digital Age—you can create just about any effect you want if you have the time, tools, talent, and software, of course. You can also hire someone to pull it off for you. While either of...

Every so often it is a good idea to sort through all your gear. With winter releasing its grip and nicer weather on the way, now is the perfect time to assess what you have, what you’ve lost, give it a good cleaning, and figure out what needs repair, what needs replacing, and what you should just shed. If you are a gear junkie like me, the thought of getting rid of any piece of gear probably...

It starts with a finished script. Unless you are intentionally doing something different, the finished shooting script is the structure that supports the film. There will be many questions that aren’t answered by the script and will require the director’s input; however, without the script, no one will even know what questions to ask. So, it really does begin with the script, and once you have...

Just in time for NAB 2017 comes the Canon 70 – 200mm T4.4 zoom lens in EF mount. Covering the Super35mm format and weighing slightly more than two-and-three-quarter pounds, this lens is a bit longer than 7 inches and covers commonly used focal lengths, maintaining a constant T4.4 over the entire zoom range. As you would expect from a cine lens, this one is parfocal, which means that focus does...
